SOURCE: Lexmark Pro805, will not print in colour. All

Have you check the printer setting and make sure to check "colour" instead of grayscale or black and white ?
Sometimes the ink doesn't flow well in the ink cable or there are air bubble in it so the ink won't come out.

Hope this help. (^_^)

Have a Lexmark Prestige Pro 805. I was using this printer and it worked perfectly until I moved it to my daughter's computer. Both of our computer's are the same. I loaded the installation software

You installed the drivers for the printer but you still need to select that printer as the default. Computers can have many printers connected to them so you will have to tell the computer to print to that printer. Go to your start menu and click on "Devices and Printers". If your printer is listed then all you have to do is right click on the icon of your printer and select "Set as default printer". If it is not listed then you can click on "Add a printer" at the top of the window, select "Add a local printer" and follow the instructions on adding your printer to the computer. Then you can set it as default like before. This may not be your problem but its worth checking to see that it is set as the default printer. If its not that then it may be a software issue.

Where to buy the Lexmark prestige pro top cover hinge of scanner

Lexmark doesn't sell or manufacture replacement hinges. If your printer is still under warranty, please contact our technical support team via phone so they can send you a replacement printer. If not, just remove the hinge and its assembly so you will be able to totally close the cover of the printer and be able to scan from the ADF.

Cartridge error

How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark
